Hi Owen,

Good to see you've cracked the Rohu puzzle as well. Please congratulate Tim from me. That was a beautiful fish 8)

Mighty Marlin.

Just good old ragi ball feeding mate, that's what has done the trick.
But i will tell you one thing, these fish are strong and real fighters MM.
Catch them on light gear (upto 25 lb line) and they fight like hell. You will wonder if you have a mahseer hooked. And they don't give in easily either.
Regards
Owen

Hi eljefe,

You should smell my tackle room. Strictly out of bounds for the house hold. :?
My brother is even worse. Hing smells like lavender in comparison to what he has stashed in his back yard. :roll:

Back to bait, and here's my four annas for what its worth to beginners.

Use atta with a drop of vanilla essence (commercial stuff will do), strawberry essence is also a great attractor, but use them both sparingly.
Atta mixed with a little haldi powder gives the bait a nice attractive colour.
Even bread flakes pressed onto the hook work well.
Earthworms will always be a good bait to have around, since they are totally natural, and the fish see this every day.
Soaked and boiled Kabuli channa and indian corn will also work well as hook bait for carp.

If you have enough time, or are fishing for even a day, pick a likely spot on a lake (the locals will have a fair idea as to where fish are frequently caught from), or look for fish activity, and ground bait the area at regular intervals, heavily at first, and while you are fishing if the bites dry up, throw in a handful or so every hour.

It is not a good idea to move places too often, better to just ground bait 1 or 2 good spots.
Ground bait selection should be based on the water being fished. In lakes or quiet pools in rivers or streams, i like to use groundnut oil cake though i am pretty sure sunflower seed oil cake should work as well. A couple of kgs of it soaked in a little water so as to make a thick paste, and then mixed with clay in a 1:1 ratio and even things like indian corn kernels or cooked bengal gram, cooked kabuli channa, even smelly stuff like hing can be added in small quantities and left to dry for a little while before gently dropping it into the water. All this can be done on the bank, with the help of a small bucket.

You should soon have some fish activity in the area. Probably the small fish at first, and then the activity will bring in the biggies.
If you see the small ones go helter- skelter, it's probably a sign of bigger things to come.

The fish will not get turned on to ragi or atta (or any of the hook baits i have mentioned above) overnight, they need to be introduced to the bait gradually, and know that it is safe to eat it. Over a period of time the addiction sets in, and nothing else works as well as what they have been introduced to.

A good alternate to ground baiting or in addition to ground baiting is to use an open end swim feeder (have to post some pix of one for you to understand if you have not seen one). The swim feeder is a transparent piece of pvc pipe about an inch in dia, and 1 and a half inch long, with holes drilled into its sides. A piece of lead is clipped on to one side of the plastic. The amount of lead, depends on how far you want to cast out (30 to 50 gm lead piece should be sufficient). The swim feeder is attached to the main line with a thin length of line maybe a foot in length and tied about a foot and a half above the hook to the main line. (Very little lead will be required for the hook). Pack the swim feeder full of the oilcake ground bait and gently cast out (no float required). The bait in the swim feeder should be of the right consistency, so that a slight shake of the rod tip will loosen up the bait in the feeder, and within 15 to 20 min it should have come out of the feeder. Over a period of time the build up of ground bait in the area will bring in enough fish activity. You hook bait should be similar to what is being used in the ground bait (indian corn, kabuli channa, even bread, worms etc).

Good luck and tight lines.
Owen

Thanks Owen for taking time off for such a detailed reply...The feeder canister seemd simple enough, no sweat.A 35mm film canister with holes drilled in the side and a metallic loop epoxied on the non cap end to attach to main line? :? I can make one after I finish typing this out!!
Problem is, most times, I am on a quick foray and am looking for 'targets of opportunity'!! not enough time to ground bait...However, will definitely refine my technique and try to find some decent locales for a regular run.
Now I have vanilla essence added to my tackle besides the hing and blacang :wink:
All I gotta do is go looking for the sunflower or groundnut pressings-any one know what they are called in the local parlance, here in UP/Delhi?
Inder, are you on?
Thanks and tight lines to you, always
Best
Axx

Hi eljefe,
Oil cake should not be too difficult to find. It is regular cattle feed, so check with a milkman :wink:
Your idea on an iprovised open end feeder is good, remember that both ends of the can need to be open. Use a transparent can if possible, so that it does not look too obtrusive in the drink. :lol:
Regards
Owen

hey guys, one important tip regarding the oil-cake... Fry the bloody thing before using it. This will release the gas from it which maybe harmful and to put it lightly, will screw up your swim in the long run..

If you want to know how bad it is.. Take a little oil-cake and put it in some warm water and seal the container.. After a few days, open the container and I assure you the smell would make you want to make love to a skunk.. :lol:

So my advice to all u guys using oil-cake- PLEASE COOK IT SLIGHTLY BEFORE USING !!! 10-15 minutes should do fine...

Guys,

Please stick to angling related discussions. Frankly i'm tired of deleting perverted and obscene posts. I'm not going to bring this up again, last warning. Let's stick to angling and stop thread hijacking.

[quote="Owen Bosen



OB-You read my mind-some thing to potter around-so the next canister gets the other end cut off and a lead weight added.
I went and bought myself a cool looking ladle -saw wife using it for 'Tadka' and a small cylinder, single hob gas stove, to melt wheel weights and patent the gavin 'oil cake fry 'have also applied to the pollution control board :twisted: Will do all this outdoors, obviously!
Will get the lead melted first and then try the 'gavin fry'
Problem with melting lead is one needs proper eye protection and if possible a decent filter mask-I have a couple of N-95's to spare from the SARS and chicken flu scares , so will deck up accordingly and give it a whirl.
Kanwar, thanks for the translation-hope I dont get whacked! It is the right word ,right?Khal , while KHAAL should be (thick) skin :wink:
